Less than four weeks after Aerosmith canceled the final four dates of their South American tour due to health issues of Steven Tyler, the singer returned to the stage on Saturday night (Oct. 21) to perform several songs at a benefit concert at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. The event was for the David Foster Foundation‘s 30th annual concert to provide “financial support for non-medical expenses to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants.”

Tyler performed Aerosmith’s rock classic “Dream On” while playing piano. He also sang “Cryin” and the group’s only #1 hit, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” (Watch them below.)

Rumors in late September indicated that Tyler had suffered a seizure following an Aerosmith concert in São Paulo. Tyler took to social media to refute that claim, noting on Aerosmith’s Facebook page:

“It breaks my heart to have left this tour early…The band has never played better…just watch the 100,000 people at Rock in Rio…I give you all an A+ for creative speculations but I certainly did not have a heart attack or a seizure ((unless Joe Perry is takin’ a rippin’ lead))…Sorry to have cut the tour short but I had to have a procedure that only my doc in the States could perform…We’ve been to Tel Aviv… to Russia… to Rio… and all the in between… I guess it’s true what they say… “That life’s a pisser when Eu’re a peein’…”

On Saturday night, Tyler appeared at the gala event with such celebrities as Jay Leno, Goldie Hawn, Oprah Winfrey and Bo Derek. The event is said to have raised over $10 million. Foster is a 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer and musician, who has worked closely with such A-List performers as Chicago, Barbra Streisand, Céline Dion, Whitney Houston and Josh Groban, among many others.
